Okay, I'm about to be all like, "ah yeah son, fourth post, let's get serious and have a heart-to-heart."

And you're (this is assuming there is a 'you') going to be all like, "ah naw she didn't. Girlfran be wack!"

Regardless, you're about to be hit with a wrecking ball full of real life.

Sometimes I just think negative thoughts as an automatic thing. And then I have to stop and think to myself, "hey you, stop that. it's not even true." I know, internal pep talks are the definition of cool.

Full disclosure, I recently lost some weight. Hard not to acknowledge it I guess, unless you didn't know me before, in which case this is awkward. Point is, I'm so used to thinking negative weight thoughts to myself it's hard to stop. My self-image is pretty much at the highest it's ever been...I would say I'm borderline arrogant? However, I try to keep the 'tude in check, and don't misinterpret. I'm not some hottie with a smokin' body (SEE, negative), but I am also not as bad as my mind seems to want me to think I am.

A girl's mind is a funny thing, at least mine is. Whenever I think something positive about the way I look (because I'm shallow) or act (when I'm trying not to be shallow, but ultimately still am) I feel like I'm being cocky and I beat myself up about it.

But if you make a habit of negative thoughts, your self-image is never going to get better. Why would it? People aren't going to give you endless, personalized compliments every five minutes on the minute to reassure you that you're looking foxy, or that you're the smartest person they know. Why would they? That's for you to do!! YOU are the one who's in control of what you think, and what you think...well, that's pretty important.

So here's what's up. I am trying to do this thing called positive thinking. Insane, amiright? I am trying to know the difference between overly confident and YESIAM confident, but really, is there a difference?

Anyhow, it's time for confidence, girls. Own yourself, regardless of looks or what you think other people think. Why not? Let the confidence surface. Rawr.

I know. so many generalizations. And so much girl power.


And with that, good night.

p.s. this is the kind of rambling and disorganization that happens when I don't stick to my list format. you're welcome.

  1. So I think I am successfully commenting more on your blog than I have on all the other blogs I follow regularly(ever). - Also, I am definitely bookmarking your blog so I can consistently read it. You know what is cool? I like your lists AND your paragraphs. Oh and I also like your poems, but that is besides the point.

    I like this post about confidence and I am super proud of you for being all positive - for putting up a fight against the negative.

    Yes you are lookin fine, but you are also intelligent, lovely, entirely hilarious, and just a splendid girl to be around. So don't feel too shallow. ;) You have lots to be positive about.


    PS. I love reading what you write because it sounds JUST like you. Thanks for adding some sunshine to my day... Even though I am supposed to be working.... Eeps!
